VH-1 launched two GD "rockumentary's" @ 1997 the first was a short documentary narrated by Kris Kristofferson on the overall history as it related mostly to Garcia's life and the second "Anthem to Beauty" was more focused on the studio efforts between Anthem, Aoxaxoa, Workingmans and American Beauty.

The recent 200th thread here regarding soundboard vs audience vs matrix discussion and i can't think of a more perfect example of "phase distortion" when listening to the Cryptical Suite on Anthem vs Attics on American Beauty.

1000 lotus petal blossoms in their collective heads perhaps, it most certainly did not deliver on Anthem vinyl. Ah yes, to be young, naive and extrapolate, what a life?
